Prevent event from propagating to parent


Recommended Posts

If I have a container and a child of it, and both have "interactable" set to true.

I noticed that if I click on the child, both the child and its container get the event.

How can I prevent the event from propagating to the parent?

Ie. imagine the container is the play area, and on top of it there's objects. If I click the play area I expect the character to move there. If I click an object, I expect to interact with it, and stop the propagation there, so it doesn't get to the play area callback.

Thanks! I'm using Typescript, and the default callback parameter was of type DisplayObject so I was not finding stopPropagation(). Ie. :

        mySprite.on('click', function (ev) {



Forcing an InteractionEvent type worked

        mySprite.on('click', function (ev: PIXI.interaction.InteractionEvent) {
